NGV TEMPORARY CLOSURE

From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

Melbourne

EXHIBITION TIMES: 12–22 MAR, TUE–FRI, 10AM–5PM & SAT, 1–5PM
OPENING: SAT 14 MAR, 2PM
A&A is the collaboration of two practitioners from completely different disciplines and cultures: Australian industrial designer Adam Goodrum (Rigg Design Prize winner 2015) and straw marquetry artisan Arthur Seigneur, a French émigré and one of an estimated 25 practitioners globally who maintain the 17th Century practice of straw marquetry.

A&A ‘Exquisite Corpse / Cadavre Exquis’ is their debut solo exhibition premiering three new unique pieces: Talleo, a tallboy; Archant, a console; and Longbow, a credenza. ‘Exquisite Corpse’, the Surrealist parlour game, describes A&A’s process: Goodrum initiates the shape and pattern, and Seigneur finishes the works with hand-dyed straw in custom hues, and labour-intensive by-hand marquetry technique.
